Nicaragua

If "Black Honey" processing were the easy road to a nectarous coffee, they’d all do it. But only a few farmers dare. The farmers remove this Arabica coffee cherry’s fruit flesh but then leave almost all its sticky mucilage still hugging the coffee bean when they spread it in a thin layer to dry. With daily diligence they rake and rotate and mix this incredibly sticky coffee to make sure only good flavors develop. Master Origin Nicaragua with ‘Black-Honey’ processed Arabica contains this coffee. It gives this Nicaraguan Arabica its smooth texture and sweet cereal notes. If you like it with milk froth, Master Origin Nicaragua with ‘Black-Honey’ processed Arabica makes a rich latte macchiato . As a coffee with milk, it’s balanced and has nutty, roasted notes that surface.

Origin
During coffee production, the Arabica coffee cherry’s fruity outer flesh is removed and the coffee beans are spread out to dry in a thin layer. It’s just as it is with natural process coffees, except with Honey process coffee almost all the sticky mucilage is left hugging the coffee bean. With daily diligence they rake and rotate and mix these incredibly sticky coffee beans to make sure only good flavors develop. The fruit’s natural sugars go deep into the heart of the bean during this time of drying. They call it the Black Honey process - mastering it produces that satiny sweetness for those who go the extra mile.
Roasting
Split roasting Master Origin Nicaragua with a medium and a slightly shorter roast keeps these Nicaraguan coffees in balance.
